Deprecated Maya2015 builds - the ones from the last release have been moved to the "old builds" archive.

Added support for Maya2017.

tetrahedralize - the old node have been rebuilt from scratch. Now it offers multiple different methods for constrained and conforming tetrahedralization, cellularization, triangulation. Also convexHull, tessellation and remeshing.
The example scenes archive is updated with new scenes showing some of the new features.

instanceManager - added border edges masking and ability to use selected objects as modifiers

mergeVectorArrays - merges multiple vector arrays

audioToArray - added explicit control over sample rate, number of channels, start/end frame (clipping range)

morph - target weights can go beyond the 0-1 range, slightly updated GUI

blendShapesManager - threshold exposed in GUI, added new features for merging of maps and mirroring of targets

copier - copy-stamping of arbitrary data (as 4d arrays) exposed as input/output multi-array attributes

Consolidated all examples into a single page. This makes it more accessible and is easier to support.

------------------

I planned few more things for this release but support for Maya2017 took a lot longer than expected, so i decided to release what's already in place.

Powerfull collision deformer, instanceManager slope modifier, contour deformer and improved copier performance need some more work and will be for the next release.

Hi Pshipkov 

Thanks to added the new version of SOuP for Maya 2017 but I tried to load it and it shows me : 

Code:
// Error: line 1: Unable to dynamically load : C:/.../plugins/soup.20160904/plugins/SOuP.mll
La procédure spécifiée est introuvable.
//
// Error: line1: La procédure spécifiée est introuvable.
  (SOuP) //


The latest download of SOuP for Maya 2016 works fine with Maya 2016 but not the plugin for 2017.


Thank you for helping
Camelia

I think i may have linked against Maya2017 beta libs. Did that with the final version. Hope this solves it.
Download and try again.

IMPORTANT:
Please re-download the latest SOuP archive.
I had to tweak something little but didn't want to release new version.
Thanks.

Very Cool update Peter! nice work on the tetrahedralize node. Nice to see stuff from Houdini into Maya. 
Thanks for the 2017 support as well!!

Actually I was not aware that Houdini got proper tets literally until 3 weeks ago.
I guess I was off the box more often than I thought.
Still, jets later than never.
The other day gave them a real try.
See tetgen in there. Great stuff.
:)

My goal is to prep the field for proper muscles framework and simulation.
I hoped to get and poweful collision deformer in this version too, which is the second part of the equation, but osx support wasted much more time than anticipated.
Then there is the third part - automation and (semi) procedural fitting.
